Paul Thomas Anderson
Philip Seymour Hoffman
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
During the psychedelic 60s and 70s Larry "Doc" Sportello is surprised by his former girlfriend and her plot for her billionaire boyfriend, his wife, and her boyfriend. A plan for kidnapping gets shaken up by the oddball characters entangled in this groovy kidnapping romp based upon the novel by Thomas Pynchon.Written by
In the same café scene with Doc and Bigfoot, Doc takes a drag off of a cigarette and clearly stubs it out in the ashtray with his right hand. Bigfoot then tells him to pick a card, which he does. Doc looks at the "card", taking a deep drag off another cigarette with his left hand. There was no time in between cuts for Doc to have lit another cigarette. See more »
The movie itself was not incredible, but the main character was nicely designed, with unpredictable behavior and feelings stronger than they seem. The other characters all had their unique parts, but they were all made so that Doc's personality would stand out. The funny part was its similarity with a film noir, but I do not intend to give spoilers
